    The fascinating and inspiring story of how one man single-handedly revived the interest in a dying culture. Aaron Lansky tells how he came to champion the cause of Yiddish literature through the collection of a massive library, filled with books from every age and corner of the world, with rare, nearly lost originals and translations of books that almost been permanently destroyed. A really wonderful book.
